inheritance of increased fat depot size, stem cell programming, and hepatic steatosis elicited by prenatal exposure to the obesogen tributyltin in mice.
Researchers at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University conducted a transgenerational
study with female rats, examining the behavioural and physiological changes in mothers exposed to chronic social stress early in life as a model for postpartum depression and anxiety.
One potentially very important factor has been largely ignored: transgenerational
epigenetic effects of senescence.
The Successful Transgenerational
Entrepreneurship Practices (STEP) Project is a global applied research initiative that explores the entrepreneurial process within family businesses.
He follows with description of neural-developmental premises of evolutionary adaptation, including evolution and stress responses and behavioral adaptation to changes in environment, ontogeny, and intragenerational developmental plasticity; epigenetics of circumevolutionary phenomena and the mechanism of evolutionary change, including transgenerational
developmental plasticity and the evolution of metazoans and their control system; and the origins of evolutionary novelty, evolution by loss or by reverting to ancestral characters, neural crest-determined evolutionary novelties, evolutionary convergences, species and allopatric speciation, and sympatric speciation.
This is the first research to show a transgenerational
effect of antibiotics," David Zeh, chair of the Department of Biology in the College of Science, said.
Malone, scarred in the womb by his mother's bottomless grief (an echo of Handy's infantile "squalling"), is frozen to the scene of traumatic repetition his dream-life has become--the transgenerational
aftermath of Mississippi's post-Emancipation collapse into Klan violence, but also a marker of contemporary racial woes, the "amazing cruelty" Handy refers to in his Joe Turner anecdote.
rescue of a genetic defect in long-term potentiation and memory formation by juvenile enrichment.
1) Since that paper--which showed that reproductive effects not just from methoxyclor but also from the fungicide vinclozolin persisted for at least four generations--the number of published articles reporting similar transgenerational
findings has increased steadily.
This will enhance the knowledge of the transgenerational
epigenetic regulation of plant genomes, and the results will impact the fields of epigenetics, RNA silencing, sRNA transport and others, and their applications in plant breeding and production and human healt.
It addresses the effects of disorganized attachment on later psychological disorders, and the transgenerational
effects of parental trauma in the context of psychotraumatology and genetics.
Babson also is a founding member of the Successful Transgenerational
Entrepreneurship Practices project, a global applied research initiative that explores the entrepreneurial process within business families and generates solutions that have immediate application for family leaders.
